January 5,

On this day in 2003, Billie Joe Armstrong, lead singer of Green Day was arrested on suspicion of drunk driving after being stopped in California for speeding in a black BMW convertible. He failed a breathalyzer test, with Armstrong blowing a .18, more than twice the state’s legal limit of .08. Armstrong did not inform the police of his celebrity persona and cooperated fully, he was taken to Berkeley county jail where he was later released on $1,053 bail.
